9:01 pm
>> well, you know, it could be about $50,000 times 4. it's a lot of money to put a kid through college these days. >> like millions of other american parents, paul and sarah start scrambling. they'll need, somehow, to raise more cash. mortgage the b&b? maybe. but what about those puzzling chinese pieces? >> i thought, "well, you know, if they are worth $10,000, that would be a chunk of change for college." >> in 2014, they track down lark mason, the man who appraised the items all those years ago. he's no longer at sotheby's but running his own auction house. >> i sent him pictures in an e-mail, and he was very excited. >> excited because, lark says, a lot's changed since the '90s, when he appraised the screen for that's appropriate to the time frame? >> for that time frame, yes, absolutely. china's economy has grown dramatically from the '90s up to

9:09 pm
the other side holds the answer. his crack research staff soon has a translation of the ancient chinese. what does it say? >> well, the inscription's really interesting, because it specifically mentions qianlong. >> emperor qianlong reigned during most of the 18th century, which is why lark is so excited by his next discovery. >> there's a date mentioned -- "30 years earlier, in 1743, when i commissioned a painting about horses." so that takes us up to 1773 or so. >> smack-dab in the middle of qianlong's reign. >> and so all that ties together here in this one screen. >> it's museum-quality? >> oh, no question. >> really? >> absolutely. no question. >> that hardly surprises the curator of asian art at the metropolitan museum of art in new york city, which has, on display, a number of works commissioned by qianlong.
9:10 pm
was he a proponent of the arts? >> he was absolutely a patron of the arts, someone who was very involved in using art as a means of self-expression, as well as to legitimize and maintain his rule. >> like this hand-carved piece of ivory used to hold paintbrushes. they're pretty fancy for putting in paintbrushes. >> it's a pretty fancy one, yes. >> like most pieces commissioned by qianlong, the brush holder tells a story. >> this is about a young scholar who was so gorgeous that, when he went by, women pelted him with flowers. >> the detail is amazing. the number of people that look like they're on a balcony. >> isn't that wonderful? >> qianlong is revered in china today. he is the emperor to whom people look up as an example of the best of good government. >> so anything from this particular dynasty is considered very valuable? >> very valuable. the equivalent for us, as
9:11 pm
americans, of owning something that would have been there with george washington. >> wow. >> "wow" is right. >> betting that wealthy chinese buyers will bid high for something that could have sat on qianlong's desk, lark jacks up his price a bit above his 15-grand appraisal in 1995. >> the table screen was now valued at between $60,000 and $90,000. >> six to seven times more than 20 years ago? >> that's right. >> it was more than we make in a year for sure... [ laughs ] ...which, to me, was more than i could ever dream about. >> 90 grand. an elated paul and sarah know that will go a long way to pay their son's college bill. but lark advises them to test the market by first selling one of the other pieces paul's dad received from that long-ago client. the result is positive. >> that jade piece that we
9:12 pm
thought would sell for about $1,000 ended up selling for $12,000. >> what?! >> and we were really stunned. >> tough to come up with the estimates in a very strong, upward-trending market. >> so, then it became clear that we got to put this table screen in an auction. >> and then, just like that, the buyers vanish. >> it was listed on the featured items, but nobody bid on it. >> will a family's hopes be dashed... >> nothing happened. >> nothing? no bids? >> there were no bids.

still no action on the table screen. >> it looked like nobody was gonna bid on it at all. >> they were nervous. >> auctions are horribly nerve-racking, because you're thinking, "my gosh. nobody's interested in this. this is terrible. oh, it's all out the window." >> finally, with just minutes to go, a flurry of bidding. >> there were two bidders, that i saw, that were going back and forth, and it just started climbing and climbing. >> the price jumps from zero to $60,000 in about 5 seconds, well into the appraisal range, then surpasses lark's high estimate. he sends the auction into overtime. it passes 200k. the final bid? $250,000 to a taiwanese collector. >> "you've got to be kidding me." i mean, it was like "monopoly" money. >> what kind of difference will that money make for you, for sarah, and for your son? >> it'll make a big difference. >> i'm really grateful that i'm gonna be able to go to college

9:49 pm
caroline remembers being as sloppy as a little girl can be with a brush, yet somehow, the next morning, every soldier looked impeccable. go figure. i'm jamie colby for "strange inheritance." thanks so much for watching, and remember, you can't take it with you. [ airplane engine buzzing ] ♪ time steve. here's the man himself, lou dobbs. lou: good evening everybody. i'm lou dobbs. donald trump today calling for an increase in military spending in a speech in philadelphia. the republican nominee warning that america's enemies are now capitalizing on perceptions of american weakness and trump says he is the man to turn it all around. trump also blasted hillary clinton's record as secretary of state saying she and president obama put america in grave danger.
9:50 pm
>> sometimes it seems like there wasn't a country in the middle east that hillary clinton didn't want to invade come into being in or tackle. she is trigger-happy and very unstable. whether we like it or not, that's what's going on. lou: i'll be taking on trump's foreign policy with former u.n. ambassador john bolton here tonight and also among my guests house oversight committee member congressman nick mulvaney. we have a lot to talk about including new revelations that the obama administration actually forked over $1.7 billion in foreign currencies to iran around the time that more americans held hostage were released in january. we told the last month that the administration paid iran for that million dollars in cash in foreign currencies but it turns out that was just a down payment.
9:51 pm
two other cash payment of accrued interest as the administration called the amount brings the total to $1.7 billion. and the race for president getting even tighter tonight. a brand-new george washington university poll shows clinton in a virtual tie with donald trump, for 18-2440 and trunk closing in on hillary clinton despite being outspent of a margin of 6-1. former medical director at ed roland's pulitzer prize-winning columnist for the "new york post" michael goodwin join me in moments to discuss all of that. our top story tonight tonight, donald trump in a national security speech in philadelphia laid out his proposal for strengthening our military and defeating the nations declared enemies. trump says on becoming commander-in-chief his urgent priority will be to ask congress to lift military spending caps to raise defense spending and seek a plan from his generals to counter the islamic state and
9:52 pm
defeat it within his first 30 days in office. trump also blasted hillary clinton and her memory lapses during her fbi interview. >> if she can remember such crucial events and information honestly she is totally unfit to be our commander-in-chief but i have a feeling she did remember and she does know and that also makes her unfit. her conduct is simply disqualifying. she talks about her experience that hillary clinton's only foreign-policy experience ended up in absolute failure. lou: trumps the message resonating with veterans and our military. and on line survey by monkey poll shows trump leading clinton by 19 points. 55%-36% among voters who are currently serving or who have served in the u.s. military.
9:53 pm
military support for trump also reflected on the "fox news poll" earlier this month. trump besting clinton among veterans and uphold 53-39%. joining us now former reagan white house political director great america pac strategist ed roland's pulitzer prize-winning columnist for the "new york post" michael goodwin vote "fox news" contributors. it's great to have you both here. michael this is now a two-point race according to the three most recent polls. i mean this is a famous newsman once said tighter than eight --. >> what's remarkable lou is how quickly trumpeted close the gap that was as much as six, eight or 13 in one poll. here we are right after labor day and it looks to be a tied race. there is one analysis out there that says trump hasn't really
9:54 pm
gained anything. it's just that she has lost but i think that misses the point. lou: that's a negative narrative being spun by democrats. >> that's right that trumps behavior on the campaign trail has improved remarkably in the last two weeks and i think that is what is causing her to decline. that stories are no longer about trump saying things off the cuff that draw a lot of negative attention. it's about the news flow damaging her. lou: do you agree? in anyway it's not distracting from his own message. >> he's very much on message and it looks very presidential. this is a guy who's used to being a big player in a big television personality and he got distracted by his little tweaks and what have you. he was not an experienced candidate. he's not getting much better. he is a smart team around him. i think this next six-day weeks is going to be very good.
9:55 pm
lou: just as an example in listing two donald trump just now in that video and audio that we brought you, he had the tech needs to lower his voice and talk about the fact that she probably did know and that also makes her unfit. he would never have dropped his voice in that way. he is really talking to the american people now and obviously with impact. >> he is providing content. i believe the immigration speech which got a lot of negative attention that i think was actually quite good. he had a 10-point plan which is something all candidates do but when he does it it's not typical for him so i think he has come a long way in terms of substance and it's making a difference. lou: honestly he has come a long way. she has i think very demonstrably fallen a long way. i mean these coughing fits,
9:56 pm
trying to dismiss them as absolutely relevant and the mainstream medium -- media won't even hold her accountable for her own health records. the american people are not buying into this nonsense that the clinton cartel is. >> around mrs. clinton. >> i have to tell you she's the worst candidate i've seen on the democratic side in a long time since dukakis and dukakis had a big lead regular member bush got them at the at the conventions of my senses she is not performing well and if you listen to what she is saying it's not meaningful. i think to a certain extent she is not exciting anybody and he basically is. lou: what's interesting about this bringing the press supporter new larger aircraft to accommodate the media, the questions are how is everything and love loveland? i mean how do you deal with the conspiracy discussion about what's causing you to go into a
9:57 pm
form in a coughing fit quite this is the national media right now that's embarrassing itself. >> you know before she started doing this there was a clock as to how long she had a press conference, 272 days. this is now being counted. lou: by the way the count goes on. >> the mainstream media was not pushing her to have a press conference so much as others because they have this access. lou: everyone is tired of being lied to don't you think wax. >> they get their questions answered by somebody off the record. lou: they get their questions answered? there is no answer. at every turn. you write a column, three days a week which by the way i read and i love the column but i have to tell you other folks writing
9:58 pm
right now about her are acting as if she's a serious candidate giving serious answers to serious questions for the american people. it's nonsense. we don't know anything about what's going on that candidate. do you agree? >> two years ago she was a knighted by the mainstream media and obviously every day since then every single day she has stumbled to move forward and they are now looking into the abyss and are very concerned and very worried. they have run a great campaign. she's a lousy candidate. lou: while i would only argue about the campaign part. i will defer to you on the running of the campaign but i mean to have all of this, i mean she is carrying every piece of baggage behind her automobile. smoke is pouring out of the thing and you know it's about to run out of gas and you don't know where it's headed. >> it goes over by -- all the way back to 2008.
9:59 pm
it was clear she had no real rationale. here we are in 2016. she is inevitable again in here we are after labor day and she still does not have a rationale. she still doesn't have a reason why she should be president. lou: and that's showing up in the polls. what do you think, is that clear as daylight? >> every day the state polls follow the national polls by a week to 10 days. lou: we didn't even get to the battleground states but things are tightening up there as well and dramatically so. michael michael goodwin, good to see land at rollins thank you very much. we are coming right back to much more to take up here. stay with us. donald trump ups the pressure on clinton as she continues to stonewall congress and the american people. >> these e-mail records were destroyed after she received a subpoena. remember that word. after, after she received a
10:00 pm
subpoena in congress. lou: hillary's hiding the truth will or coverups exceed? committee member commerce men mick mulvaney joins me next. these waters are about to -- thanks to some of the oceans most playful creatures. we will show you the video of the remarkable encounter, next. at old dominion, we see freight... ...as a combination of products and customers. every on-time arrival is backed by thousands of od employees, ...who make sure the millions of products we ship arrive without damages. because od employees treat customer service... ...like our most important delivery. od. helping the world keep promises.

lou: fbi director james comey today defended his decision not to prosecute or recommend prosecution of hillary clinton over her e-mail scandals. comey sent a letter to employees where he said in part quote at the end of the day the case itself was not a cliffhanger despite all the chest beating by people no longer in government. there really wasn't a prosecutable case. comey also said more documents from the agency's investigation of clinton will be forthcoming. joining me now congressman nick mulvaney a member of the house oversight and government reform committee as well as the financial services committee to congressman, great to have you with us and it looks to me like the chest beating is being done by james comey trying to defend the decision that is unpopular
10:05 pm
and many say utterly wrong. >> that is just bizarre. keep in mind would come he did. he took a law which especially you have to do four things to be guilty of breaking the law. you actually have to have specific intent and it's not written in the law but it's hard to imagine how congress could change the law to actually get at what hillary clinton did and it ripped away -- i'm very disappointed in fbi director comey. lou: to me i would love to hear an explanation of the difference between gross negligence which is in the law and which would have been chargeable and his invention, his concoction is extremely careless. what would be the intellectual divide there? >> in the first year of law school there wasn't any and every more being taught that extreme carelessness was
10:06 pm
disregard. again, very strange. it does leave everyone at the distinct impression that certain people get treated differently under the law. if you are rich and powerful and the secretary of state to get treated one way and if you are some guy or gal on the street you get treated another way. no reasonable prosecutor would bring the case. i know a lot of reasonable prosecutors. trey gowdy is one of them and their many in congress. again just a sad history. lou: the contrast between servicemembers and the way they have been treated by this administration and the specific issue is in stark contrast to the way they put their warm loving arms around mrs. clinton in her moment. do you believe james comey is crooked? >> absolutely not. that's what's so frustrating to me as someone who has spent a lot of time in the hearing.
10:07 pm
seems like a very honest upright and straightforward guy. that is his reputation. there are men and women in congress who have worked with him and this guy is a straight shooter. that's why the end result here is so confounding. it doesn't seem to match what the facts. lou: congressman how do we explain the director of the fbi turns to the state department and throws it at them and says okay you guys decide whether you want us to prosecute or not. i don't see anywhere in my reading of the potential charges and the basis for it. >> fast-forward to what's going to happen tomorrow. we are going to have a hearing here tomorrow with the folks that maintained that e-mail server and wiped it clean after balloting they got a subpoena and it works to preserve evidence. they then got a phonecall from hillary clinton's lawyers and miraculous way a couple of days later wiped the server claim. we are going to have this hearing tomorrow but in the back
10:08 pm
of our minds we are wonding what could we possibly show that would get somebody charge of something in this world where director comey starts making it up on his own. that's what's so frustrating to us. we will have the hearing tomorrow and we will continue to shine light on it but we are concerned as everybody else that the law is not being legally applied here. lou: i want to touch on this because so much is being made now in discussing the integrity of our electoral system and particularly their number of democrats who seem to be far more concerned about the russians carrying out a cyber attack against our electoral system than they are in the integrity of the vote itself, that is making certain that everyone is indeed a registered and qualified voter. what in the world is going on with the idea that the office of personnel management, what was that 30 million former and
10:09 pm
present federal employees names and files breached that could have been prevented? >> the answer to your question what is going on is politics. many democrats seem more concerned about the russians possibly getting involved in election process than they are concerned about hackers actually getting our information on the office of verse no management rated to go deeper than that there are risks that all sorts of federal agencies right now. the department of education keeps hundreds of millions of records. that's not an exaggeration. they include bank records and they are using technology from 1980s. where's the outrage from my democratic colleagues on that material that they get so on up and politics that they can't focus on anything else could. lou: congressman nick mulvaney thanks for being with us. breaking news ryan lochte and three other american swimmers olympic swimmers have reportedly been suspended for lying about being held at gunpoint in rio de

10:15 pm
lou: we have never had a presidential election quite like this one. a few thoughts now on this presidential race is getting closer by the day. the race between trump and clinton has narrowed dramatically over the past month mrs. clinton held a double-digit lead into national polls at the beginning of last month. she now holds a three-point lead over trump in a head-to-head
10:16 pm
race, shrinking to point lead in a four-way race according to realclearpolitics average. the latest "cnn" poll were see poll shows a nominee should have solid support from their bases now and about 90% each. remember when that was not going to be possible for donald trump? well things have changed and they keep changing. trum winning among white voters, men and older voters and those without college degrees and has a 20-point advantage among independents. this is clinton meanwhile leads among women, nonwhite voters, college grads and younger voters that their race is tightening by the day despite her barrage of attacks against him. a new analysis shows mrs. clinton dominating on attack ad spending by a 6-1 margin over trump. 6-1. clinton has now spent more than $81 million on those ads in the general election compared to trump's 13 million and when you factor in spending from super pacs, clinton and her supporters outspending trump by
10:17 pm
a 5-1 margin. to what effect though? despite vicious attack ads the sheer power of her ad spending there has been almost no impact on trump at all. in fact he has managed to pull within three points of her, to point in the three most recent polls. trump was impervious to attack at when battling as many as 16 opponents in the primary campaign season. some political "capitol update" stop the result would be different in his head-to-head general election race. they are wrong again. clinton's attack ads have been changed trumps trajectory at all that she will keep trying, you can count on that. she has lots of money to spend and she headlines 37 fund-raisers last month. we are sure that she has plenty of ammunition for what is now an all-out battle that will be fought out over the next two months. we have a large number of voters still undecided in some states.
10:18 pm
that number is as high as 20%. trump has in my opinion significant at bandages. trump outperformed by his significant margin, is polling in the second half of the primary election season so there is that while hillary may argue she is running for a third obama term she obama term she is in the minds of many democratic voters doing just that and a campaign should be deeply troubled that her poll performance to this point doesn't validate voter support for them, third term. while clinton and trump have their detractors certainly and obstacles, trump has some momentum and poll direction and should act three. independents are breaking for trump by a huge margin, as much as 20%. at least anecdotally he is making a persuasive case for himself among for the first-time minority voters and finally it appears the republican establishment and republican elites are beginning to come to their senses. trump's final advantage would be
10:19 pm
an energized organize focus republican party network turning out voters in favor of their nominee on november 8. with that, trump the republican party in this country in my opinion would be the big winners. our quotation of the evening, this one from author and columnist william bond who said, a citizen of america will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won't cross the street to vote in a national election. maybe this year we will all be a little different at maybe it's time we tried to cross the streets instead of oceans. we are coming right back. stay with us. donald trump today exposing clinton's failures as president obama secretary of state. >> unlike my opponent my foreign policy will emphasize diplomacy, not destruction. hillary clinton's legacy in iraq , libya, syria has produced only turmoil and suffering and

lou: wikileaks founder julian assange accusing hillary clinton of lying when she told the f.b.i. she didn't know what the classified markings on her email means. he says every one rsh in government knows it and for classified confidential. he promises there will be a september surprise of damaging clinton emails. >> it will be reasonably soon. we might put out some teasers. i don't want to prop is anything because we have to see how the formatting goes. but we could put out teasers next week or the week after. matt schlapp, and tammy bruce, that's the next week or two, tammy.
10:25 pm
teases from assange. is hoik -- well, i know one thing. nancy pelosi thinks the republicans shouldn't be using any of that material, what do you think? >> of course not. the fact that she is afraid of it means it' important stuff. wikileaks, they deliver, they don't make things up. they are careful to when they say what they have and when they will deliver what they have. we have seen they have delivered some important things. this comment from him is an indication -- lou: do you think he will back it up? >> he will. and the clinton team knows they are probably in even bigger trouble. lou: julian assange, the republicans are boosting him and the democrats are fearful of him right now. can we embrace the idea that the public has a right to know and
10:26 pm
the devil take the hind most? i don't care who it's on. if it needs to be out there for the public i'm delighted it's happening. >> what does she have to hide. she deleted thousands and thousands of emails. shy stonewalled. it took five congressional investigation before we found out she had the server in her home. what they lied and object few ad every inch of the way. what do she do? she attacks the man overseas doing the disclosures for hillary. i don't condone everything he does. but why shouldn't the american voter see these things? >> there is no reason. and the idea that pelosi as she implores paul ryan not to use document that are the result of
10:27 pm
cyber attacks, that to me is laughable. she has been part of this cartel of corruption i call the clintons for decades. and it's just utter nonsense. tammy, your thought right now. this race tightened to a degree that hope springs for most republicans. what do you make of it? >> everybody should who is a republican and cares about the future of the country should be excited about this. hillary clinton has spent over $100 million on ads for herself and against donald trump. the media and the establishment machines are for her and she can't get away from donald trump, even with some of his own unforced error. it shows how baked in the attitude of the american people is when they look at a chance for something different and a complete rejection of the establishment as it stands. it's finally the indictment of hillary clinton that we have
10:28 pm
been waiting for, and i think we'll see this continue. we have 60 days? it will be very exciting. lou: let's get to that issue. the issue is this. the republican establishment, matt, there are signs and reports that some of the never trumpers are starting to realize he might win this damn thing and they might ought to shovel money on the table toward him and his candidacy. is paul ryan on board? is mitch mcconnell on board or are they still playing the pools? >> my approach on ryan and senator mcconnell and others is their constituency or republican members in their conferences, i talked to the people looking and tracking polls in the contests house races, and they look very good. the house is in very good shape, and they are starting to feel
10:29 pm
confident they will hold on to majority in the house which eases their concerns. lou: i realize these are states men and not interested in politics. but the reality is they are starting to understand that as if they can carry the label in a hypothetical discussion like this, they are going to have to follow their constituents toward donald trump even though they don't have the guts or the sense to do so. >> i think they are hearing from grassroots regular old americans across the country who are saying to them, we voted for him in the republican primaries. we want an outsider. the things you don't like about him are the things we like about him. when elected officials in washington on the republican side have trouble with trump it's because trump is taking on what they have done, and it will be good for the country. lou: that should be the priority. unfortunately, it isn't for everyone.
10:30 pm

10:31 pm
>> hillary clinton has taught us how -- how vulnerable we are in cyber hack. it's probably the on thing we learned from hillary clinton. what is success? is it a professor who never stops being a student? is it a caregiver determined to take care of her own? or is it a lifetime of work that blazes the path to your passions? your personal success takes a financial partner who values it as much as you do. learn more at tiaa.org it's a very specific moment, the launch window. we have to be very precise. if we're not ready when the planets are perfectly aligned, that's it. we need really tight temperature controls. engineering, aerodynamics- a split second too long could mean scrapping it all and starting over.

10:36 pm
former united nations ambassador. the british after being so rude to donald trump, now are stealing his ideas. >> well, they face -- it's ironic, this cal air, s entry -- this calais entry point has attracted thousands of people who want to get through the channel. they have had riots and terrorist threats it's something happening all over europe. they see the impact of these people coming in. it's amazing the political effect it's had. lou: for the british to be emulating donald trump, this looks like the resumption of a special relationship if he's elected. let's turn to russia. current problems we face as a nation. a russian fighter taking on one of our p.s. surveillance and spy
10:37 pm
planes over the black sea within 10 feet. and what happened? nothing. how long can this nonsense go on without a mistake? >> we are right at the point of mistake. 10 feet away with those kinds of bleans that kind of speed is see row feet away it calls to minds the sort of things they did to our ships in the baltic sea a few months ago and resuming flights of strategic bombers near our coast. putin will continue to do this as long as he thinks he can get away with it. he certainly got a free pass until january 20 of next year. it's not just the russian problem. it's around the world. everybody saw what china did to obama to make him come out of the belly of the plane instead
10:38 pm
of the main entrance with it other leaders did. lou: as a national security expert, former member of the state department, ambassador to the united nations, what leader in his right mind or her right mind takes an insult like that and just tramples on down out of the belly of air force one? why would you put up with this? >> this is no drama, obama. he did stands up to the president of the philippines who called him an s.o.b. and agreed not to have a meeting with him. the real problem is not the insult and lack of response. the real problem is china, russia and, and o on on the of d others will already perceived the weakness and taken advantage of it. he has a bull's-eye sign on his

back and "kick me" sign and they are willing to oblige. lou report russians have crimea. the chinese continue to build their islands in the south china sea. they continue to build out their missile capabilities. this is happening and it's without effect. it's a lot more than just an insult with having him trundle down the steps of the aircraft. >> the positions of strength we created over decades, political and economic strength are eroding, and the struck tiewrts of deterrence that stopped the russians and chinese from thinking about this kind of thing are disappearing. you don't hear anything about this from hillary clinton. she'll be barack obama's third term and i think these leaders

poll we asked you, is it irresponsible of the national liberal media to ignore hillary clinton's obvious hailtd l health issues. 93% say yes, it's irresponsible. senior pastor of the new spirit revival center, pastor darrell scott. great to have you with us. lot of people are reacting to donald trump's trip to detroit. the democrats are having a hissy fit. they are upset. it's like there is a fence you don't cross if you are a republican candidate for president, and he has mightily upset democrats, especially one hillary clinton. what do you make of it? >> they are upset about it because they are making inroads in the african-american community. he went to my friend wayne t. jackson's church. we had a wonderful time. so hillary wants to reach back
10:46 pm
into the past and pull the birther issue out so they can play it. they are trying to make birther issue a racial issue. and it was never a racial issue, it was political. they are trying to ply on the emotions of black people. but we had a great time in detroit and there are a lot of people who changed their mind about donald trump just off that one meeting. they say he's not the way i thought he was, the way the media depicts him to be. lou: it's a terrible to see when people are shoulder to shoulder that people aren't cartoon cutouts of one another. looking at the reading i do every day. one reporter was having a fit about a black pastor who he claimed was opening his church
10:47 pm
to a quote-unquote bigot, referring to trump. this is nasty stuff. you know, what do you think? >> they play the race card on trump all the time because that's all they have. trump communicates and connects with african-americans. we can relate to his realness, his plain spokenness. i like this swag. he's cool. they play that race card. one thing about the race card, when you play it. they played the race card as a trump card because when you refute the racial allegations they can accuse you of being a racist for revealing it. but there are a lot of supporters of donald trump, there is an under grounds trump support movement by blacks that fear the backlash from our constituents and our families. but i know of a ton of leaders and people who will support him. i coined the term i want to continue produce on the lou
10:48 pm
dobbs show to america. there is a term for the black supporters of trump who don't want to let everybody know. the term is right now they are incognegro. they prefer to remain incognegro. they will support trump.ting booth all by themselves with nobody look over their shoulder to critique or judge them for the choice they make, they are going to vote for donald trump a lot. lou: i feel about the vote, the african-american vote, the black vote in this country that's taken for granted by the republican party, working men and women who are union members. their management is going one direction supporting illegal immigration.
10:49 pm
and they are going to be voting for trump. just as they voted for reagan. i think it's a wonderful thing to see. >> i do, too. lou: pastor, it's great to see you. >> thanks for having me. i'm looking forward to coming back again and again. i'm trying to invite myself back. time steve. here's the man himself, lou dobbs. lou: good evening everybody. i'm lou dobbs. donald trump today calling for an increase in military spending in a speech in philadelphia. the republican nominee warning that america's enemies are now capitalizing on perceptions of american weakness and trump says he is the man to turn it all around. trump also blasted hillary clinton's record as secretary of state saying she and president obama put america in grave danger.
10:50 pm
>> sometimes it seems like there sn't a country in the middle east that hillary clinton didn't want to invade come into being in or tackle. she is trigger-happy and very unstable. whether we like it or not, that's what's going on. lou: i'll be taking on trump's foreign policy with former u.n. ambassador john bolton here tonight and also among my guests house oversight committee member congressman nick mulvaney. we have a lot to talk about including new revelations that the obama administration actually forked over $1.7 billion in foreign currencies to iran around the time that more americans held hostage were released in january. we told the last month that the administration paid iran for that million dollars in cash in foreign currencies but it turns out that was just a down payment.
10:51 pm
two other cash payment of accrued interest as the administration called the amount brings the total to $1.7 billion. and the race for president getting even tighteronight. a brand-new george washington university poll shows clinton in a virtual tie with donald trump, for 18-2440 and trunk closing in on hillary clinton despite being outspent of a margin of 6-1. former medical director at ed roland's pulitzer prize-winning columnist for the "new york post" michael goodwin join me in moments to discuss all of that. our top story tonight tonight, donald trump in a national security speech in philadelphia laid out his proposal for strengthening our military and defeating the nations declared enemies. trump says on becoming commander-in-chief his urgent priority will be to ask congress to lift military spending caps to raise defense spending and seek a plan from his generals to counter the islamic state and
10:52 pm
defeat it within his first 30 days in office. trump also blasted hillary clinton and her memory lapses during her fbi interview. >> if she can remember such crucial events and information honestly she is totally unfit to be our commander-in-chief but i have a feeling she did remember and she does know and that also makes her unfit. her conduct is simply disqualifying. she talks about her experience that hillary clinton's only foreign-policy experience ended up in absolute failure. lou: trumps the message resonating with veterans and our military. and on line survey by monkey poll shows trump leading clinton by 19 points. 55%-36% among voters who are currently serving or who have served in the u.s. military.
10:53 pm
military support for trump also reflected on the "fox news poll" earlier this month. trump besting clinton among veterans and uphold 53-39%. joining us now former reagan white house political director great america pac strategist ed roland's pulitzer prize-winning columnist for the "new york post" michael goodwin vote "fox news" contributors. it's great to have you both here. michael this is now a two-point race according to the three most recent polls. i mean this is a famous newsman once said tighter than eight --. >> what's remarkable lou is how quickly trumpeted close the gap that was as much as six, eight or 13 in one poll. here we are right after labor day and it looks to be a tied race. there is one analysis out there that says trump hasn't really
10:54 pm
gained anything. it's just that she has lost but i think that misses the point. lou: that's a negative narrative being spun by democrats. >> that's right that trumps behavior on the campaign trail has improved remarkably in the last two weeks and i think that is what is causing her to decline. that stories are no longer about trump saying things off the cuff that draw a lot of negative attention. it's about the news flow damaging her. lou: do you agree? in anyway it's not distracting from his own message. >> he's very much on message and it looks very presidential. this is a guy who's used to being a big player in a big television personality and he got distracted by his little tweaks and what have you. he was not an experienced candidate. he's not getting much better. he is a smart team around him. i think this next six-day weeks is going to be very good.
10:55 pm
lou: just as an example in listing two donald trump just now in that video and audio that we brought you, he had the tech needs to lower his voice and talk about the fact that she probably did know and that also makes her unfit. he would never have dropped his voice in that way. he is really talking to the american people now and obviously with impact. >> he is providing content. i believe the immigration speech which got a lot of negative attention that i think was actually quite good. he had a 10-point plan which is something all candidates do but when he does it it's not typical for him so i think he has come a long way in terms of substance and it's making a difference. lou: honestly he has come a long way. she has i think very demonstrably fallen a long way. i mean these coughing fits,
10:56 pm
trying to dismiss them as absolutely relevant and the mainstream medium -- media won't even hold her accountable for her own health records. the american people are not buying into this nonsense that the clinton cartel is. >> around mrs. clinton. >> i have to tell you she's the worst candidate i've seen on the democratic side in a long time since dukakis and dukakis had a big lead regular member bush got them at the at the conventions of my senses she is not performing well and if you listen to what she is saying it's not meaningful. i think to a certain extent she is not exciting anybody and he basically is. lou: what's interesting about this bringing the press supporter new larger aircraft to accommodate the media, the questions are how is everything and love loveland? i mean how do you deal with the conspiracy discussion about what's causing you to go into a
10:57 pm
form in a coughing fit quite this is the national media right now that's embarrassing itself. >> you know before she started doing this there was a clock as to how long she had a press conference, 272 days. this is now being counted. lou: by the way the count goes on. >> the mainstream media was not pushing her to have a press conference so much as others because they have this access. lou: everyone is tired of being lied to don't you think wax. >> they get their questions answered by somebody off the record. lou: they get their questions answered? there is no answer. at every turn. you write a column, three days a week which by the way i read and i love the column but i have to tell you other folks writing
10:58 pm
right now about her are acting as if she's a serious candidate giving serious answers to serious questions for the american people. it's nonsense. we don't know anything about what's going on that candidate. do you agree? >> two years ago she was a knighted by the mainstream media and obviously every day since then every single day she has stumbled to move forward and they are now looking into the abyss and are very concerned and very worried. they have run a great campaign. she's a lousy candidate. lou: while i would only argue about the campaign part. i will defer to you on the running of the campaign but i mean to have all of this, i mean she is carrying every piece of baggage behind her automobile. smoke is pouring out of the thing and you know it's about to run out of gas and you don't know where it's headed. >> it goes over by -- all the way back to 2008.
10:59 pm
it was clear she had no real rationale. here we are in 2016. she is inevitable again in here we are after labor day and she still does not have a rationale. she still doesn't have a reason why she should be president. lou: and that's showing up in the polls. what do you think, is that clear as daylight? >> every day the state polls follow the national polls by a week to 10 days. lou: we didn't even get to the battleground states but things are tightening up there as well and dramatically so. michael michael goodwin, good to see land at rollins thank you very much. we are coming right back to much more to take up here. stay with us. donald trump ups the pressure on clinton as she continues to stonewall congress and the american people. >> these e-mail records were destroyed after she received a subpoena. remember that word. after, after she received a
11:00 pm
subpoena in congress. lou: hillary's hiding the truth will or coverups exceed? committee member commerce men mick mulvaney joins me next. these waters are about to -- thanks to some of the oceans most playful creatures. we will show you the video of the remarkable encounter, next.

lou: fbi director james comey today defended his decision not to prosecute or recommend prosecution of hillary clinton over her e-mail scandals. comey sent a letter to employees where he said in part quote at the end of the day the case itself was not a cliffhanger despite all the chest beating by people no longer in government. there really wasn't a prosecutable case. comey also said more documents from the agency's investigation of clinton will be forthcoming. joining me now congressman nick mulvaney a member of the house oversight and government reform committee as well as the financial services committee to congressman, great to have you with us and it looks to me like the chest beating is being done by james comey trying to defend the decision that is unpopular
11:05 pm
and many say utterly wrong. >> that is just bizarre. keep in mind would come he did. he took a law which especially you have to do four things to be guilty of breaking the law. you actually have to have specific intent and it's not written in the law but it's hard to imagine how congress could change the law to actually get at what hillary clinton did and it ripped away -- i'm very disappointed in fbi director comey. lou: to me i would love to hear an explanation of the difference between gross negligence which is in the law and which would have been chargeable and his invention, his concoction is extremely careless. what would be the intellectual divide there? >> in the first year of law school there wasn't any and every more being taught that extreme carelessness was
11:06 pm
disregard. again, very strange. it does leave everyone at the distinct impression that certain people get treated differently under the law. if you are rich and powerful and the secretary of state to get treated one way and if you are some guy or gal on the street you get treated another way. no reasonable prosecutor would bring the case. i know a lot of reasonable prosecutors. trey gowdy is one of them and their many in congress. again just a sad history. lou: the contrast between servicemembers and the way they have been treated by this administration and the specific issue is in stark contrast to the way they put their warm loving arms around mrs. clinton in her moment. do you believe james comey is crooked? >> absolutely not. that's what's so frustrating to me as someone who has spent a lot of time in the hearing.
11:07 pm
seems like a very honest upright and straightforward guy. that is his reputation. there are men and women in congress who have worked with him and this guy is a straight shooter. that's why the end result here is so confounding. it doesn't seem to match what the facts. lou: congressman how do we explain the director of the fbi turns to the state department and throws it at them and says okay you guys decide whether you want us to prosecute or not. i don't see anywhere in my reading of the potential charges and the basis for it. >> fast-forward to what's going to happen tomorrow. we are going to have a hearing here tomorrow with the folks that maintained that e-mail server and wiped it clean after balloting they got a subpoena and it works to preserve evidence. they then got a phonecall from hillary clinton's lawyers and miraculous way a couple of days later wiped the server claim. we are going to have this hearing tomorrow but in the back
11:08 pm
of our minds we are wondering what could we possibly show that would get somebody charge of something in this world where director comey starts making it up on his own. that's what's so frustrating to us. we will have the hearing tomorrow and we will continue to shine light on it but we are concerned as everybody else that the law is not being legally applied here. lou: i want to touch on this because so much is being made now in discussing the integrity of our electoral system and particularly their number of democrats who seem to be far more concerned about the russians carrying out a cyber attack against our electoral system than they are in the integrity of the vote itself, that is making certain that everyone is indeed a registered and qualified voter. what in the world is going on with the idea that the office of personnel management, what was that 30 million former and
11:09 pm
present federal employees names and files breached that could have been prevented? >> the answer to your question what is going on is politics. many democrats seem more concerned about the russians possibly getting involved in election process than they are concerned about hackers actually getting our information on the office of verse no management rated to go deeper than that there are risks that all sorts of federal agencies right now. the department of education keeps hundreds of millions of records. that's not an exaggeration. they include bank records and they are using technology from 1980s. where's the outrage from my democratic colleagues on that material that they get so on up and politics that they can't focus on anything else could. lou: congressman nick mulvaney thanks for being with us. breaking news ryan lochte and three other american swimmers olympic swimmers have reportedly been suspended for lying about being held at gunpoint in rio de

like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com.

11:15 pm
lou: we have never had a presidential election quite like this one. a few thoughts now on this presidential race is getting closer by the day. the race between trump and clinton has narrowed dramatically over the past month mrs. clinton held a double-digit lead into national polls at the beginning of last month. she now holds a three-point lead over trump in a head-to-head
11:16 pm
race, shrinking to point lead in a four-way race according to realclearpolitics average. the latest "cnn" poll were see poll shows a nominee should have solid support from their bases now and about 90% each. remember when that was not going to be possible for donald trump? well things have changed and they keep changing. trump winning among white voters, men and older voters and those without college degrees and has a 20-point advantage among independents. this is clinton meanwhile leads among women, nonwhite voters, college grads and younger voters that their race is tightening by the day despite her barrage of attacks against him. a new analysis shows mrs. clinton dominating on attack ad spending by a 6-1 margin over trump. 6-1. clinton has now spent more than $81 million on those ads in the general election compared to trump's 13 million and when you factor in spending from super pacs, clinton and her supporters outspending trump by
11:17 pm
a 5-1 margin. to what effect though? despite vicious attack ads the sheer power of her ad spending there has been almost no impact on trump at all. in fact he has managed to pull within three points of her, to point in the three most recent polls. trump was impervious to attack at when battling as many as 16 opponents in the primary campaign season. some political "capitol update" stop the result would be different in his head-to-head general election race. they are wrong again. clinton's attack ads have been changed trumps trajectory at all that she will keep trying, you can count on that. she has lots of money to spend and she headlines 37 fund-raisers last month. we are sure that she has plenty of ammunition for what is now an all-out battle that will be fought out over the next two months. we have a large number of voters still undecided in some states.
11:18 pm
that number is as high as 20%. trump has in my opinion significant at bandages. trump outperformed by his significant margin, is polling in the second half of the primary election season so there is that while hillary may argue she is running for a third obama term she obama term she is in the minds of many democratic voters doing just that and a campaign should be deeply troubled that her poll performance to this point doesn't validate voter support for them, third term. while clinton and trump have their detractors certainly and obstacles, trump has some momentum and poll direction and should act three. independents are breaking for trump by a huge margin, as much as 20%. at least anecdotally he is making a persuasive case for himself among for the first-time minority voters and finally it appears the republican establishment and republican elites are beginning to come to their senses. trump's final advantage would be
11:19 pm
an energized organize focus republican party network turning out voters in favor of their nominee on november 8. with that, trump the republican party in this country in my opinion would be the big winners. our quotation of the evening, this one from author and columnist william bond who said, a citizen of america will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won't cross the street to vote in a national election. maybe this year we will all be a little different at maybe it's time we tried to cross the streets instead of oceans. we are coming right back. stay with us. donald trump today exposing clinton's failures as president obama secretary of state. >> unlike my opponent my foreign policy will emphasize diplomacy, not destruction. hillary clinton's legacy in iraq , libya, syria has produced only turmoil and suffering and

lou: wikileaks founder julian assange accusing hillary clinton of lying when she told the f.b.i. she didn't know what the classified markings on her email means. he says every one rsh in government knows it and for classified confidential. he promises there will be a september surprise of damaging clinton emails. >> it will be reasonably soon. we might put out some teasers. i don't want to prop is anything because we have to see how the formatting goes. but we could put out teasers next week or the week after. matt schlapp, and tammy bruce, that's the next week or two, tammy. teases from assange.
11:25 pm
is hoik -- well, i know one thing. nancy pelosi thinks the republicans shouldn't be using any of that material, what do you think? >> of course not. the fact that she is afraid of it means it' important stuff. wikileaks, they deliver, they don't make things up. they are careful to when they say what they have and when they will deliver what they have. we have seen they have delivered some important things. this comment from him is an indication -- lou: do you think he will back it up? >> he will. and the clinton team knows they are probably in even bigger trouble. lou: julian assange, the republicans are boosting him and the democrats are fearful of him right now. can we embrace the idea that the public has a right to know and the devil take the hind most?
11:26 pm
i don't care who it's on. if it needs to be out there for the public i'm delighted it's happening. >> what does she have to hide. she deleted thousands and thousands of emails. shy stonewalled. it took five congressional investigation before we found out she had the server in her home. what they lied and object few ad every inch of the way. what do she do? she attacks the man overseas doing the disclosures for hillary. i don't condone everything he does. but why shouldn't the american voter see these things? >> there is no reason. and the idea that pelosi as she implores paul ryan not to use document that are the result of cyber attacks, that to me is laughable.
11:27 pm
she has been part of this cartel of corruption i call the clintons for decades. and it's just utter nonsense. tammy, your thought right now. this race tightened to a degree that hope springs for most republicans. what do you make of it? >> everybody should who is a republican and cares about the future of the country should be excited about this. hillary clinton has spent over $100 million on ads for herself and against donald trump. the media and the establishment machines are for her and she can't get away from donald trump, even with some of his own unforced error. it shows how baked in the attitude of the american people is when they look at a chance for something different and a complete rejection of the establishment as it stands. it's finally the indictment of hillary clinton that we have been waiting for, and i think
11:28 pm
we'll see this continue. we have 60 days? it will be very exciting. lou: let's get to that issue. the issue is this. the republican establishment, matt, there are signs and reports that some of the never trumpers are starting to realize he might win this damn thing and they might ought to shovel money on the table toward him and his candidacy. is paul ryan on board? is mitch mcconnell on board or are they still playing the pools? >> my approach on ryan and senator mcconnell and others is their constituency or republican members in their conferences, i talked to the people looking and tracking polls in the contests house races, and they look very good. the house is in very good shape, and they are starting to feel confident they will hold on to majority in the house which
11:29 pm
eases their concerns. lou: i realize these are states men and not interested in politics. but the reality is they are starting to understand that as if they can carry the label in a hypothetical discussion like this, they are going to have to follow their constituents toward donald trump even though they don't have the guts or the sense to do so. >> i think they are hearing from grassroots regular old americans across the country who are saying to them, we voted for him in the republican primaries. we want an outsider. the things you don't like about him are the things we like about him. when elected officials in washington on the republican side have trouble with trump it's because trump is taking on what they have done, and it will be good for the country. lou: that should be the priority. unfortunately, it isn't for everyone. matt, great to have you here.

planes over the black sea within 10 feet. and what happened? nothing. how long can this nonsense go on without a mistake? >> we are right at the point of mistake. 10 feet away with those kinds of bleans that kind of speed is see row feet away it calls to minds the sort of things they did to our ships in the baltic sea a few months ago and resuming flights of strategic bombers near our coast. putin will continue to do this as long as he thinks he can get away with it. he certainly got a free pass until january 20 of next year. it's not just the russian problem. it's around the world. everybody saw what china did to obama to make him come out of the belly of the plane instead

of the main entrance with it other leaders did. lou: as a national security expert, former member of the state department, ambassador to the united nations, what leader in his right mind or her right mind takes an insult like that and just tramples on down out of the belly of air force one? why would you put up with this? >> this is no drama, obama. he did stands up to the president of the philippines who called him an s.o.b. and agreed not to have a meeting with him. the real problem is not the insult and lack of response. the real problem is china, russia and, and o on on the of d others will already perceived the weakness and taken advantage of it. he has a bull's-eye sign on his back and "kick me" sign and they

are willing to oblige. lou report russians have crimea. the chinese continue to build their islands in the south china sea. they continue to build out their missile capabilities. this is happening and it's without effect. it's a lot more than just an insult with having him trundle down the steps of the aircraft. >> the positions of strength we created over decades, political and economic strength are eroding, and the struck tiewrts of deterrence that stopped the russians and chinese from thinking about this kind of thing are disappearing. you don't hear anything about this from hillary clinton. she'll be barack obama's third term and i think these leaders know that already.

irresponsible of the national liberal media to ignore hillary clinton's obvious hailtd l health issues. 93% say yes, it's irresponsible. senior pastor of the new spirit revival center, pastor darrell scott. great to have you with us. lot of people are reacting to donald trump's trip to detroit. the democrats are having a hissy fit. they are upset. it's like there is a fence you don't cross if you are a republican candidate for president, and he has mightily upset democrats, especially one hillary clinton. what do you make of it? >> they are upset about it because they are making inroads in the african-american community. he went to my friend wayne t. jackson's church. we had a wonderful time. so hillary wants to reach back into the past and pull the

birther issue out so they can play it. they are trying to make birther issue a racial issue. and it was never a racial issue, it was political. they are trying to ply on the emotions of black people. but we had a great time in detroit and there are a lot of people who changed their mind about donald trump just off that one meeting. they say he's not the way i thought he was, the way the media depicts him to be. lou: it's a terrible to see when people are shoulder to shoulder that people aren't cartoon cutouts of one another. looking at the reading i do every day. one reporter was having a fit about a black pastor who he claimed was opening his church to a quote-unquote bigot, referring to trump.
11:47 pm
this is nasty stuff. you know, what do you think? >> they play the race card on trump all the time because that's all they have. trump communicates and connects with african-americans. we can relate to his realness, his plain spokenness. i like this swag. he's cool. they play that race card. one thing about the race card, when you play it. they played the race card as a trump card because when you refute the racial allegations they can accuse you of being a racist for revealing it. but there are a lot of supporters of donald trump, there is an under grounds trump support movement by blacks that fear the backlash from our constituents and our families. but i know of a ton of leaders and people who will support him. i coined the term i want to continue produce on the lou dobbs show to america.
11:48 pm
there is a term for the black supporters of trump who don't want to let everybody know. the term is right now they are incognegro. they prefer to remain incognegro. they will support trump. when they are in that voting booth all by themselves with nobody look over their shoulder to critique or judge them for the choice they make, they are going to vote for donald trump a lot. lou: i feel about the vote, the african-american vote, the black vote in this country that's taken for granted by the republican party, working men and women who are union members. their management is going one direction supporting illegal immigration. and they are going to be voting for trump.
11:49 pm
just as they voted for reagan. i think it's a wonderful thing to see. >> i do, too. lou: pastor, it's great to see you. >> thanks for having me. i'm looking forward to coming back again and again. i'm trying to invite myself eciate that. pastor darrell scott. we thank you for being with us. kennedy: tonight donald trump says he has a plan to rebuild the u.s. military and rebuild isis. but will it work? damaging new details on hillary clinton's seem scandal. is there evidence she tried to manipulate the benghazi hearing? one well-known coach tells his players if you pull a capper nick you are never -- pull a kaepernick, you are never getting off the bench.
